Just for Kicks: The Year in Cartoons Paperback – April 1, 2011
by John Curtis (Editor), Andy Mason (Editor)
A year’s anthology of South Africa’s best political cartoons, this hilarious compilation also narrates the story of the country’s epic hosting of the FIFA World Cup. Corruption scandals, counterfeit currency, dodgy judges, eco-disasters, lifestyle audits, paternity scandals, and all the usual gaffes and catastrophes are momentarily sidelined by a month of deafening soccer madness. An interesting reexamination of South African society, this unique chronicle covers all of 2010’s notable occurrences.
